In short, the question stem gives you an insane amount of information, and to jump into the stimulus blind is just an awful, awful, terrible idea. I cannot stress it enough--reading the stimulus first is as stupid as reading the answer choices first.
Yeah, this is just awful, awful posting. The test prep companies with the best reputations typically teach exactly what you think is so unconscionable and with good reason. That being said, I'm not one to denounce either method because the answer is almost certainly to do what works best for you and both methods have their advantages.
No, THIS is just awful posting. See, my post came with an argument, and examples. Your post came with "These popular fellas over here teach X, therefore X must be right."
Nope, that's not what I said at all. Maybe if I had given you a stem to read first you would've understood the content of my stimulus better
I, too, have taken the LSAT. It turned out very well for me, despite muddling along with my obviously inferior method of reading the stimulus first. I always find it amusing when people allow their individual experiences compromise their ability to critically think. I don't need to detail all of the reasons that reading the stimulus first is advantageous in certain ways, they're very widely known and self-evident. Again, I'm not asserting the superiority of one method over another, whatever feels most comfortable for you OP.
